Diabetes Risk Assessment

Diabetes At Risk Questionnaire

By answering the following questions you can calculate your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next 5 years. If you get a ‘high’ score on AUSDRISK, you are eligible to attend a type 2 diabetes risk evaluation by your GP if you are aged: 40 to 49 years (inclusive). 15 to 54 years (inclusive) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Once submitted we will complete your score and let you know if you are eligible for this Bulk Billed Health Assessment.

Your age group
Your gender
Are you of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Pacific Islander or Maori descent?
Where were you born?
Have either of your parents, or any of your brothers or sisters been diagnosed with diabetes (type 1 or type 2)?
Have you ever been found to have high blood glucose (sugar) (for example, in a health examination, during an illness, during pregnancy)?
Are you currently taking medication for high blood pressure?
Do you currently smoke cigarettes or any other tobacco products on a daily basis?
How often do you eat vegetables or fruit?
On average, would you say you do at least 2.5 hours of physical activity per week (for example, 30 minutes a day on 5 or more days a week)?
Your waist measurement taken below the ribs (usually at the level of the navel, and while standing)
The correct place to measure your waist is halfway between your lowest rib and the top of your hipbone, roughly in line with your navel. Measure directly against your skin, breathe out normally, make sure the tape is snug, without compressing the skin. Make a note of your waist measurement and score as below.
